Thanks for the reply. After reading your message I said ok I'll go and rip out the back seat and see if the noise is coming from that pump in the gas tank ... but then I realized that it only makes the noise when I'm driving over about 20 MPH ... so if that IS it, it only makes the noise when the engine wants a decent amount of gas ... but at the same time it doesn't make the noise if you just stick it in neutral and rev the engine... hmmmm

the in the tank pump may not make the noise until it has been put under load (ie the need to deliver more fuel) , does the noise stop (once started ) after you stop the car?
